shook off her expectations. And shot to the top.
This is Vanessa Dichari
When a recruiter tried to sell Vanessa Dichari on a box company, she rolled her eyes and thought, “Don’t waste my time.” Then she went in for the interview. The people were great, the challenge was exciting, the fit felt right.
As a Client Relationship Manager in Portland, OR, Vanessa has fully embraced all things packaging. But what gets her most excited are the ways Ernest challenges expectations and pushes the limits. “It’s a very open-minded culture,” Vanessa said. “The people here are what make it different. And I love sharing our creative solutions with our clients, like Cardboard Chaos. Who would have thought you could build a surfboard or a guitar from corrugated?!?”
In just six years, Vanessa has gone from new recruit to a true leader. As Client Relationship Manager, she’s set a record-breaking pace that’s redefining sales success. But her journey wasn’t easy. After a decade in the telecom industry, she faced a big learning curve. But Vanessa has a lot of E-Team in her, so naturally, she faced the challenge head on. In true Ernest-like fashion, she innovated to solve problems for our customers, which made her story compelling, and opened a lot of doors.
Vanessa continues to build a successful book of business that’s breaking records month after month. She loves helping her clients find solutions for their unique problems or just simply giving them better options. Her story is living proof that you should never underestimate the power of perseverance.
“This is a company that lets you really capitalize on your strengths.”
Today, Vanessa remains focused on building her book, but is equally focused on finding balance in her life. Which is why she takes time out to pursue one of her top personal goals: traveling. Her favorite spot? Thailand. She loves the people, the serenity and the quality of life. Not to mention the fact that it’s a place many people wouldn’t expect her to go.
This makes complete sense, of course, because delivering the unexpected is one of her true strengths. It’s all part of staying committed, staying balanced and going above and beyond for her clients. With Vanessa, that’s one thing you can always count on. When it comes to exceeding expectations, expect her continue to lead the way.
